Samuel & Dominic Amoia
The NY based Amoia brother duo, is taking the stage of this issue to present their innovative and bold approach to furniture and design, a combination of Samuel’s vision for design, colour, texture and furniture with sculptor Dominic’s conceptual use of materials, and original casting process.
From the exploration of the geometry and the iconic twentieth design, they developed the new collection MINERALITY, re-contextualizing form and function with materials that are not in the traditional canon.
Malachite, Amethyst, and Pyrite have never been thought of as materials for furniture, but with a unique casting process that also fuses more traditional materials such as cement or plaster, they create bespoke pieces like nothing else before. Washing and crushing all of the stones themselves, respecting the precious energy qualities of these rare minerals, giving a family labour of love and collaborative energy to create these incredible artisanal and one of a kind pieces.
